Weekends are a busy time for many - sports, practices, parties, running to the grocery store or simply sleeping in. We are moving our Beat the Stampede to a more friendly time for many, a weekday evening!
"Get Ahead of the Herd" and join us on Thursday, October 19th, 2023, for the Beat the Stampede and Kid's Mini Mile.
We will kick off the event with the Kid's Mini Mile at 5:00 PM; the first heat will follow up 5:30 PM.
Lights will turn on at dusk and more lights for runners!

Run with the Stampede virtually! Run or walk from any location you choose - road, trail, treadmill, beach or track. Run 1 mile or 1609 meters on your own, at your own pace, and time it yourself. The virtual option is a great way for family and friends who may not be able to make it to the "the home of the Bulls", UB. Once you have completed the race, send your results to email@example.com. Metals for Buffalo residents will be available for pick up at Alumni Arena, Recreation Service after submission of race results. A metal will be sent to the address listed for registration within 2 weeks after submitting race results when registered as a non-Buffalo resident
